Send us your photos, please!

If you are attending any of the end of the year parties and events, please take some photos and email them or text them to bucherpto@gmail.com.  The yearbook will include photos of every class, and the more selection we have, the better representation of each student/classroom/event we can give.

 

Manheim Township Girl’s Youth Lacrosse

laxRegistration for the Manheim Township Girl’s Youth Lacross Spring 2016 season opened on December 15th. The club will have teams for players from Kindergarten through 8th grade.

They are currently looking for coaches to work with the K-4th grade teams. Please contact Sean McCullough if you are interested. There are coaches training programs available if you are interested.

 

 

Teacher Gift Ideas

Looking for a great gift to give to your favorite teacher?  Here are a few suggestions to help with that hard-to-select gift.

Teachers preferences vary, of course, with some LOVING Starbucks or Barnes and Noble and others preferring an item to unwrap.  Either way, you will want to select an item based on what you know about your child’s teacher!

Items for use in the classroom:

  • Sanitizer
  • Markers
  • Pencils
  • Fun eraser caps

Gift cards to places for purchasing classroom materials or gifts:

  • Amazon
  • Target
  • Barnes and Noble

While a gift for your teacher is a lovely plan, there are some teachers who might prefer you to make a donation in their name to a worthwhile organization.  Consider a donation to a local charity or sponsoring a local family in need.

Our teachers are always so appreciative of the gifts given.  Of course, their gifts to us (educating and caring for our children) are invaluable!
